on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin
and keeping that focus, i would expect that nancy pelosi's going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> david, obviously, interesting comments of the president there and the first read team says despite and we all know this, the debate over immigration and what to do about gun violence in this country, it is still the economy and they write, david, just in part, there's been no bridging between conservative view of austerity by measures of cutting spending cuts and what the democrats see here. as the solution, especially with sequester. we know that the democrats certainly have their plan as we have been told. they want a 50-50 split of spending cuts and tax hikes. that's the plan democrats are leaning toward but this still really is about the economy and how to solve some of the immediate problems we have. >> yeah. i must tell you that i'm one of the progressives who agrees with the economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and
make cuts as well. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi talking about sequestration and the budget on "fox news sunday" with chris wallace. she says the democratic party has made enough spending cuts though it is open to more and what the economy really needs is growth and new revenue. earlier this morning i had the opportunity to is sit down with chris wallace and hear more about his exclusive interview with the congress woman. chris, your conversation with nancy pelosi earlier today was actually the other day that you pretaped it, she seemed to indicate that democrats are bound and determined to raise taxes again. >> absolutely. you know, it is the old line the president used it during the campaign, balanced approach. it can't all be spending cuts, it has to be spending cuts and also some tax increases on the wealthy and loo it worked for them in the campaign. it worked during the argument over the fiscal cliff. i think and you see the president making the case now it is a choice between helping the middle class who the white house says will be hurt by these automatic spending cu
. that's what he was tweeting during the state of the union. he has declared nancy pelosi a domestic enemy against whom he is sworn to protect the nation. he has said that president obama is part of a socialistic elite planning to declare martial law. and he has said that the president may use the excuse of a flu pandemic to declare a martial law. he said, quote, we've seen that historically. guess how this gentleman feels about health reform? >> folks, this is obama care. let me start this by telling you what i think of this bill and obama care. they only have one agenda, and that is socialism. i call it -- i call it a steamroll of socialism that is being driven by nancy pelosi, harry reid, and fueled by barack obama. >> so very strong feelings about obama care. i should also tell you, though, that congressman browne also has very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. he has very, very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. >> the cdc, they're going to be calling you and finding out how many fruits and vegetables you eat today. this is socialism of the highest order. >>
rough on nancy pelosi please. give people hope. i hope that means you're going to crucify -- >> oh really? would you stop it? >> throw a bucket of water on her and see what happens. throw a bucket of water on her. i'll bet she melts. >> stephanie: wicked witch humor. okay. >> you know, i know he makes the rounds to drum up business for the sunday show which is dead last and always has been. but you know, he appears on a show like thafnlt he appears oh, stop it. why are you making those cracks? they do it all the time. chris wallace is supposed to be the last sort of serious journalist in the fox news umbrella. it is just embarrassing. >> stephanie: all right. well said. eric boehlert for media matters. see you next week, honey. >> all right bye. [ applause ] >> we will be on next week. next monday. i know is a holiday. we'll be giving you a fresh live show. >> stephanie: enjoy. >> sara in colorado. >> good morning, folks. how are you doing? >> caller: your nails are pretty too if i can put my 2 cents in. >> i have a couple of things. i don't want to take up your time. i want to get
at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be one of the key points in the debate -- he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. fantasizing universal background checks but briefly talking about the assault rifles ban. what does that mean for passa
